We move toward the completion of celebrating the Paschal Mystery as we recall the Ascension of the Lord. Where He has gone, we all hope to follow.

Being a follower of Jesus means anticipating life with God forever in Heaven. The Holy Spirit beckons us all to eventually return to the bosom of the Father.

O Holy Spirit, please grant me a resilient and fervent spirit. May I be docile in receiving the gifts that God intends me to share with others. When I do so faithfully and well, the Kingdom of God is at hand.
